Men’s Fitness is a men’s magazine published by American Media, Inc. Founded in the United States in 1987, it was originally called Sports Fitness. The premier issue featured Michael Pare from the television show, The Greatest American Hero. The name of the magazine was changed to Men’s Fitness in 1988.

The Men’s Fitness slogan is “How The Best Man Wins”. The magazine targets men ages 21–40 and features in-depth articles on fitness, nutrition and sports, as well as sex tips, fashion advice, interviews, recipes and surveys.

Since its inception, Men’s Fitness has become one of the fastest-growing titles in its category and licenses its title and format to Russian, Australian and British editions. Circulation doubled between 1997 and 2003 and continues to expand. As of February 2007, circulation was 700,000.[citation needed]

Covers

People who have appeared on its cover include Pamela Anderson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Andy Roddick , Joe Weider, Robert Marting, Dana White, Sebastian Siegel, Reggie Bush, Albert Pujols, Ja Rule, Karen McDougal, and Carmen Electra.

Tennis champion Andy Roddick complained when he discovered his body had been altered in the May 2007 cover photo of the magazine. He wrote on his blog, "If you can manage to stop laughing at the cover long enough, check out the article inside." [1] "Little did I know I have 22-inch guns and a disappearing birthmark on my right arm." Representatives of the magazine asserted that the athlete's arms had been enhanced, not replaced. [2]
